Evolutionary Medicine (Original PDF from Publisher)


Stephen C. Stearns (Author), Rusian Medzhitov (Author)

Evolutionary Medicine is intended for undergraduate, graduate, or medical school courses. It draws from fields as diverse as anthropology to molecular biology in order to illustrate the vast landscape of an organism in all its complexity. In contrast to the reductionist approach often taken to answer complex biological questions, much of the strength of the book derives from the authors’ ability to step back and describe themes that are broadly generalizable. This alternative perspective allows for an innovative understanding of basic biological processes with profound translational potential. The striking simplicity of the author’s [sic] overall thesis allows the book to address, in a novel light, questions as fundamental as ‘What is a patient?’ as well as ‘What is a disease?’”
—Alexandra Kuhlmann, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
